    v2.0, 09/12/2001, 3:00pm
     As I stand in shock of the recent events in the town where I work (DC), my
     heart goes out to those who have lost today.
     Updated all of the recipes for 1.09 and fixed the 'Recipes/recipes' spelling
     problem. Blizzard sure does enjoy nerfing things..
    
    v1.4, 07/21/2001, 9:00pm
     There are conditions that affect whether or not crafting will work and 
     they're *weird*. Check out Section 4.1.2. Renamed Counter items to 
     Hit Power items to bring them into line with what people expect. Same goes
     for Safety -> `Safety`. Noted that non-magical weapons will craft properly. 
    
    v1.3.2, 07/11/2001, 7:00pm
     Amended the Single-Player warning.
    
    v1.3.1, 07/11/2001, 11:30am
     Added the warning about Single-Player mode.
    
    v1.3, 07/09/2001, 10:30am
     Fixed a few more Recipes and recodified the Deadly class. Took out the word
     'magical' from item requirements, posted a note about that action, and 
     did some reformatting. Just enough to push up the version number. :) 
    
    v1.2.2, 07/08/2001, 11:00pm
     It's the hour of FAQ updates! Added a paragraph about what happens if you 
     put extra jewels, gems, or runes into a crafting Recipe.
    
    v1.2.1, 07/07/2001, 1:27a
     Corrected the `Caster` Belt Recipe.
    
    v1.2, 07/04/2001, 9:33pm
     Corrected a problem with the formula for Safety Boots. 
    
    v1.1, 07/04/2001, 6:00pm
     Formatted everything for posting and submitted to GameFAQs.
    
    v1.0, 07/04/2001, 5:00pm
     This is actually the reason I started writing FAQs this afternoon.. I was
     assembling a big listing of all my info on crafted items, and correcting
     inaccuracy after innacuracy on a certain unnamed website (who refused my
     help!). hmph. I'll just put up my own info. :)
    
    ______________________________________________________________________________
    
      2. Introduction
    ______________________________________________________________________________
    
    
    Welcome to the D2 Expansion Crafted Items FAQ. While I was compiling various
    information that I've acquired on D2, I realized that fully half of everything
    you read about crafted items is complete crap. To that end, I'm establishing
    this FAQ as the central resource for crafted item knowledge.
    
    I'm pretty sure I have a handle on how they work, which I'll explain later,
    but if anyone catches an inaccuracy, please email me about it. My email's down
    in the Credits and Contact Info section, and I request that screenshots be
    sent in to back up your points. :)
    
    Okay, now that the happy intro is aside, let's get down to business.

      3. Quick intro on Crafted Items
    ______________________________________________________________________________
    
    A Crafted Item is a new class of item for the D2 Expansion. Their names are
    orange in color, and they have been around since the Beta was released.
    
    Crafted Items fall somewhere between Rares and Sets. Like Set items, certain
    modifiers will always be the same.. and like Rares, you will never have two
    that are completely alike, as there are many random factors that get thrown
    on, too.
    
    A Crafted Item gets between one and five preset modifiers, and up to five more
    random affixes that can alter the magical properties. These affixes aren't
    shown - only the item's name is listed, like with Rares.
    
    The real draw for Crafted Items is a way to use Runes, Gems, and Jewels all
    together to create something truly useful for play. How they'll stack up to
    Rares depends entirely on the mods.. Think of them as Rares that you can kind
    of weight the deck a little for, demand that certain modifiers be on them.

      4. Crafted Item Breakdown      
    ______________________________________________________________________________
    
    
    Now that we know what crafted items are, let's talk about how they're made.
    
    
    .----------------------------------------------------------------------------.
    | 4.1: Changes since the 1.09 patch                                          |
    '----------------------------------------------------------------------------'
    
    *sighs*, where to begin.
    
    Blizzard reorganized some of the equipment in the crafting sets, so that it's 
    a little more uniform. Plate Mail is no longer part of the Caster set, since
    most low-level Casters can't wear it, for example.
    
    While doing this, Blizzard completely rearranged what runes are used in the 
    crafting process, forcing a rewrite to occur.
    
    On top of that, the effectiveness of several of the crafting preset mods has
    been reduced. It could be argued that this was a rounding off of the numbers
    (read as `rounding *down*`).. but that doesn't hold for, say, the Safety
    recipes, where the resistance bonuses went from 5-15% down to 5-10%. 
    
    I guess that would matter more if crafting normal items didn't suck to begin
    with, but it just makes it an even more futile action now. gooooooo Blizzard.
    
    
    ** Other New Notes **
    The elite recipes aren't ready yet. Likewise, the Deadly items haven't been
    updated. I don't know if the old recipes are functional or not, but I've 
    listed them as non-functional just to be safe. Nothing is sacred after 1.09. 
    
    
    .----------------------------------------------------------------------------.
    | 4.2: Crafted Item Theory                                                   |
    '----------------------------------------------------------------------------'
    
    A crafted item is made in the following fashion:
    In a Horadric Cube, combine 1 magical item (weapon, armor, or jewelry), 1
    perfect gem, 1 rune, and 1 jewel.
    
    The choice of Perfect Gem controls what form of Crafted Item you're going to
    make. All `Blood` items are made with Perfect Rubies, whereas all `Deadly`
    items are made with Perfect Skulls, and so on.
    
    The Rune that you use is varied. The jewel used can be any jewel, and has 
    no effect on the crafting process.
    
    
    Elite items can also be crafted, but the Recipes are different for them. 
    
    
    When the Recipes say, for example, `8-15% chance of Deadly Strike`, it means
    your crafted item will get a modifier between 8 and 15, such as 9% chance of
    Deadly Strike. You will not get the range, 8-15.
    
    Some crafted items can be re-crafted. Try doing that to increase the modifiers
    that you recieve.
    
    
    .----------------------------------------------------------------------------.

    '----------------------------------------------------------------------------'
    
    Gem type | Crafted type
    ---------+-------------
        Ruby | Blood
    Amethyst | Caster
    Sapphire | Hit Power
     Emerald | Safety

     Diamond | ?
       Skull | Deadly

      5. Crafted Item Recipes
    ______________________________________________________________________________
    
    Just one more time, in case you missed it above - 
    
    
      ALL ITEMS USED FOR CRAFTING MUST BE MAGIC ITEMS!
               unless otherwise specified.
      
    As I go through and updated for the 1.09 Recipes, I will keep old Recipes
    that I haven't found current compliments for. 
    
    Old Recipes will be marked with >> 's. 
    
    Example:
    
    New Recipe	blah blah
    >> Old Recipe	  blah blah

    | 5.1.1: Normal Blood Recipes                                               |
    '----------------------------------------------------------------------------'
    
    Blood items all have bonuses to life, life leeching ability, and most have an
    added chance of Deadly Strike. Nice for Melee chars, especially the Elite
    forms. Even if Leech is messed up in the Expansion, who cares if you have 40%
    of it?

    The Caster Recipes favor mages and other mana-dependant classes, but most
    everyone can find some benefit from having added Mana Regen and Mana Steal.

    Do you have additions or corrections for this FAQ? Send an email over to
    <wingchild@home.com>. If you're correcting information about modifiers, or
    showing off a new class of Crafted that I don't have listed yet, please send a
    screenshot with your email. List the original item type and whether it's
    normal, exceptional, or elite. Also list the formula used, and I'll read the
    modifiers off the screenshot. That's the only way to keep good and current
    information. :)
    
    Don't know how to take a screenshot? Hit Print Screen while in D2, and you'll
    find it saved as Screenshot001.jpg in your Diablo 2 game directory. Mail that
    JPG to me, and corrections will happen ASAP. Full credit will be given to the
    people responsible for contributions or corrections.
